14F/21GR exhibition was a tribute to the oeuvre of a younger generation of architects in France and in Greece. Presenting 14 architects and creative teams from France and 21 from Greece, it recorded a wealth of architectural narratives about the contemporary urban and natural landscape and revealed common trends and references in both countries.

The exhibition structure simulated the working space of an architectural studio. Photographs, architectural plans, models and digital projections were presented on drawing boards and the Museum walls like works-in-progress. Each presentation included a small unfolding booklet that was designed by the participants.
The different career paths taken by this internationally oriented generation, were noted on a common map.
